February Eco Emi Box

Eco Emi is a monthly subscription service that sends a minimum of 5 eco-friendly/conscious products to your door for $15 a month w/shipping included.  The products range from beauty, household, food, etc.  They send a really nice variety of items including food, beauty etc. You get a little bit of everything. It's something everyone is your house could enjoy.  My Eco Emi boxes are always nicely packaged and stuffed full of treasures.

This subscription is available in the US only and ships from St. Peters, Missouri

The good:

Price: Eco-friendly product samples can be difficult to find.  I appreciate being able to try these products for a fraction of the price of purchasing full size. 

Eco-friendly: Every little bit helps

Variety: Not just beauty products.  You get food, home, drinks, etc.

Want more: Sometimes they have left over boxes that they sell after the subscriptions have been sent out.  The cost of these is $15 w/shipping included.  Kinda cool if you really like or know someone that would really like that months box. 

Skip a month:  You can put your account on pause if you want to skip that month.    

Information: They put a card in every box with information on the products as well as the price. 

The not so good:

Payment: You have to set up a recurring payment through PayPal.  I don't like this because PayPal makes you use your PayPal balance before they take money from your checking/credit card.  I like to save my PayPal balance for misc eBay purchases.

February Eco Emi Box

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

Good Natural Candles, 6 pack Tea Light Candles. Value = $2.49

Wild Garden All Natural Hummus. Value = $0.86

Aubrey Organics Organic Hairspray. Value = $1.99

Jersey Shore Sun Vegan Lip Balm. Value = $5.00

Blissoma Lavish Face Mask. Value = $2.12

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Eyelash Conditioner. Value = $1.50

Premier Organics Chocolate Vanilla Paste. Value = $1.35

The total value of  this box is approximately $15.31. I'm actually eager to try everything in this box except the hummus dip. I like hummus but I think because this isn't refrigerated it has something that taste odd in it to me. Maybe I will mix it with regular hummus and see how that turns out. I use tea lights in my candle melt holder thing all the time and I think I'm almost out. Chocolate paste? Is that like a spread? Turns out yes it is. The little hairspray is cute and probably going right into my travel bag. I have some lash conditioner I used awhile ago, I don't know if it made a difference or not but I used it anyway.

Verdict: This was a great box even though it was even with the price paid.
